usually the things that are free or cost very little are pretty prestigious. off the top of my head i can name rsi, but it is uber selective. lots of colleges offer summer programs, but they aren't selective and cost thousands of dollars.

Any humanities-based programs?

It's may be too late for a lot of selective programs for summer 2004. Deadlines are past, acceptances are going out.

There is a program for gifted students offered at Northwestern U and Case Western U called Center for Talent Development. It has a division for students in grades 9-12.

where do you live?

in some states, you can go to governor's schools that are humanities-based. they're free and very selective.

Harvard Summer School is a great time summer.harvard.edu Its not to late... actually the longer you wait the better it is (May), b/c you get put in with slackers who are a lot more interesting

If your state sponsors a Governor's School program (like NJ, for instance) that is quite well regarded because not only is it free (state subsidized) but very difficult to get into as well.

Some of the UC campuses hold the Cosmos summer thing. I know a friend who did it and said it was really fun, if you are into that kinda thing. It looks really well on any application, but the UC ones have a special area that just asks about Cosmos.
